Okay, the general consensus is that it's a Sail, but Roxenda keep saying it's original. I think it's just a Sail, but there's no real way to know.
Its definitely not an original, it has a QiYi logo on it. Im going to go with sail, thanks! On speedcubeshops sticker picker, what cube should I choose to get stickers for it, as there is no original sail? Also is there a similar cube I could choose to get stickers for a SuLong?

Okay, these are Guanlongs. The cover is different because whatever company you bought these from asked YJ custom printing. They tend to only offer that if you buy 3000+ cubes
Okay okay, thank you, so the first one is sold by YJ under the name of "Magic Cube" instead of the original Name Guanlong and the second is also a Guanlong, but is there a Guanlong version that has these patterns inside? I only know the Guanlong, Guanlong Plus and Guanlong V3
I bought the second one from a dollar store in my town, btw

Can anyone tell me what cube this is? It has a QiYi logo and I bought it from Roxana's Magic Cubes on Amazon. It came in a bundle with similar feeling 2x2 and pyraminx.
Seems to be just a standard qiyi sail. They don't make them anymore but they are good for modding

The cube that you took the layer off is a Yulong.

This is a long shot - some puzzles from about a decade ago when I first started cubing. I think these puzzles were purchased in China by my parent's friend so they are likely no-name knockoffs.

The two 3x3s have basic Rubik's mechanisms and the only thing interesting is that they are tensionable / DIY and have logos I have never seen anywhere else. They are very cheaply made because they actually have paint instead of stickers, which immediately started fading and chipping away.

The square-1 says "Square-1" on the red sticker but otherwise no markings.

The 4x4 has no markings either. Ball core and painted colors.

The 2x2 is very large at 60mm and has thick stickers with a bit of texture. No corner cutting whatsoever but otherwise quite smooth.

The pyraminx again has no logo and has a standard ball bearing mechanism.

Edit: Googling 百变魔王 (roughly "variety magic king", in Chinese rubik's cubes are known as "magic cubes") shows me some brand that made a bunch of Rubik's snakes and twisty puzzles. Here's a video showing the awful paint colors https://www.bilibili.com/video/av9903653/ with 20 sec solves. Picture from internet

梦幻 just means "dream", 梦幻魔方 again some random Chinese brand. More details https://detail.1688.com/offer/38810972842.html
